By more poetry needed

Plant a tree,
that’s enough.
Hang it with all your good memories
as lights
for when you are scared
in the dark.
From the book ‘Ga niet naar zee’ by Tommy Wieringa.


By ideas are everywhere

On my reading pile these really great stories about cycling by the amazing Wilfried de Jong, who also makes kick-ass tv. Beautiful cover picture by Stephan Vanfleteren and it could not have had a better title. It’s a Dutch expressing meaning ‘against the grain’ and feeling the wind on your head is the nicest thing about riding a bike. At least that is for me.
